  Theme - The Key to a Stronger, More Saleable Scripts with Leading International Script Consultant Dara Marks

Use The Powerful Tool of Theme to
Consistently Write Better Scripts

In the process of developing plot and character, it’s easy for a writer to lose track of those elements that give a story significance and meaning. In this course, Dara Marks – a leading script consultant and author of the top-selling book on screenwriting, Inside Story: The Power of the Transformational Arc – will discuss how to consistently create scripts that contain more depth and substance by developing a strong thematic core that defines and drives the narrative. In this course, you will discover that theme is more than just a nice thought or concept, it’s actually a powerful tool that enables you to reach into the heart of your story and:

  • Create memorable and forceful characters.
  • Build more original, powerful plotlines.
  • Develop unique and compelling imagery.
  • Express the depth of your protagonist’s humanity.
  • Write strong, effective subtext and rich, honest dialogue.

Knowing how to utilize the power of theme enhances your ability to write something you care about that not only connects more deeply with audiences, but will undoubtedly make producers sit up and pay attention.
